Re: Obscure files/buffers bug

If you have a non-file buffer, and do a ^X^V, it doesn't correctly change
it into a file-type buffer.  m-X Save does not offer to save that buffer
(although ^X^B shows it with a star) and ^X^W works but prompts with a random
filename other than the name of the buffer.

This commonly happens to me when it dies while trying to read in a file
because the chaos net went down and the chaos net software didn't detect
the error right.
